To the devastation of many, especially little girls, the confetti that was installed at the ceiling of the Javits Center in Manhattan never fell on the night of November 8, 2016.  Artist Bunny Burson, who served as executive director of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities in President Bill Clinton’s administration and as part of Hillary Clinton’s Missouri Steering Committee, has tracked down that confetti and turned it into inspirational art.

Early on election night last November, artist Bunny Burson looked to New York City’s Javits Center ceiling, expecting confetti to fall to celebrate Hillary Clinton becoming the nation’s first woman president. But the confetti never fell.

It is no secret that until the summer of  2015, Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump were friends. They are no longer so close. Actress and playwright, Melissa Rauch put her imagination to work on what it might have been like when Chelsea and Ivanka did lunch. The result is a two-character satirical play that will run for one night only to benefit Planned Parenthood.  Zosia Mamet will join Rauch for what is sure to be the hottest ticket in town this summer.

Zosia Mamet and Melissa Rauch are teaming up to put on a comedic event in New York City where they’ll assume the roles of Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton, respectively, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The event, titled The Secret Lunches of Chelsea & Ivanka, will be held for one night only at Joe’s Pub on July 24 and will directly benefit Planned Parenthood. Because the only thing better than watching badass babes performing together is knowing that the event helps to provide millions of women with access to reproductive health services.
